Adelaide: My opinion of adoption fairs

Adelaide

I'm looking for a new home.  My human parents split up, and so me and Mercedes (now called Princess) need to find a new home. Mercedes and I aren't related, but we were both adopted out by the same family when we were kittens. We're both real sweet, and were raised in a home with children and another cat.

My original post about me said:

I'm the sweet, quiet one.  I love people, and start to purr when you enter the room.  I love hiding under cardboard boxes and chasing pens. When people come back after being away for any amount of time I become a purr-box and demand to be petted and played with. I am also fascinated by mirrors and computer screens. I'm usually very quiet, but I do have a gentle mew when I have something to say.

The shelter had this to say about me:

Hi! I'm Adelaide and I am an active and fun kitten, looking for that perfect family to go home with.  I enjoy meeting new people, and have lots of cuddles to share.  I'm also spunky and playful, especially when I see little toy mice!  If you're looking for a sweet and entertaining young lady, then look no further. Ask to meet me today!

Aiden

Aiden

I was adopted by a family when I was a kitten, and returned a couple years later. It's an awful story, and I'm trying to move one, and I'm looking for another home, and someone to love me.

I've been a bit traumatized by having to leave my home and people, and so need a quiet foster home and people to understand what I've been through and be patient with me.

This is my original posting:

Me and my siblings were brought to the shelter when we were tiny babies, and we were all given names that started with the letter A. The Fat Cat people saw us and thought we were adorable, and took us in hopes of finding us our forever homes.

I don't like to brag, but I'm the good looking one.    I have a beautiful gray mask that covers my white face, and a little gray spot on my pink nose that just won't rub off.  I'm very gentle and somewhat cautious at first, but once I'm comfortable, I become very outgoing. I let my sister try things first, and then dive in right after her when it looks like fun. I love to chase my sister around the house, and I like all kinds of toys. I'm very friendly, and will sit in your lap and purr if you give me the chance.  When I'm sleepy, I lay on my side and stretch out twice my normal length so you can pet me. I'm a pretty laid back little guy and would make a great companion.

Pick me!

Blarney: Baby picture

Blarney

We were on the "needs rescue list" at a local shelter.  The shelter was filling up and we were in danger of being put to sleep, so the Fat Cat people took us home.

I'm the smallest or the clan.  My brother Bug is very friendly, and he's always the one getting all the attention, because he runs right up to people.  I always follow him, and do whatever he does.  My foster mom tells me I'm very good-looking, because I have a "ticked" tabby pattern, which is unusual.  I am extremely friendly and give nose-to-nose kisses to my foster dad every day. When it's nap time -- which is just about any time for a kitten -- I like to drape myself across the shoulders and neck of any person and fall asleep. I am an amazing acrobat when chasing the toy mouse on the string, and when I catch it, don't even think of taking it away! I'm sweet, quiet and cuddly, and now all I need is a permanent home to call my own.

Blossom

Blossom

We were on the "needs rescue list" at a local shelter.  The shelter was filling up and we were in danger of being put to sleep, so the Fat Cat people took us home.

I'm the only girl.  Let's face it, my brothers are OK, but I'm smarter than all of them put together.  My foster mom tells me I'm a very pretty girl, because I have a "ticked" tabby pattern like my brother Blarney, which is unusual.  I'm a petite little girl, and will often sit back and watch my brothers wrestle and tumble.  But once I decide to join in, you could only describe my style of play as “reckless abandon.” I have the fastest reflexes of all my siblings and once I attack the toy mouse on the string, I never miss. I will trot around with toys in my mouth and growl to show to my brothers that I'm tough; this really makes my foster family laugh. I will run up to greet you and give kisses, and I like to be held when I’m sleepy.  My best buddy is my brother Bug.

Brewster

Brewster

We were on the "needs rescue list" at the shelter.  The shelter was filling up and we were in danger of being put to sleep, so the Fat Cat people took us home.

I'm the big boy of the group, and I'm quite handsome: I have large paws, a long fluffy tail, and cute tufts of fur growing out of my ears. I'm quiet and easygoing, and have a soft purr. I'm also cautious, which keeps me out of trouble (unlike my brother Bug). Although I'm a big boy, I'm very gentle during my frequent wrestling matches with my siblings. Playtime is my favorite time. I am very graceful and I can reach incredible heights when I run and jump for toys. I'm sweet.

Bug: Baby pic

Bug

We were on the "needs rescue list" at the shelter.  The shelter was filling up and we were in danger of being put to sleep, so the Fat Cat people took us home.

I'm the friendliest of the clan.   I run right up to people and want to be held. And I love to snuggle with my foster family while they're watching TV.  If any of my siblings are getting petted, I tend to get a little jealous, and demand to be part of the action.  I will stand on my hind legs and gently pat my foster mom’s face as a greeting.

My favorite toy is a mouse that rattles, which I will intentionally hide under the sheet and then immediately find again as if I didn’t know it was there. My foster mom especially likes how I dip my paw in the water bowl and lick the water off.  I enjoy tackling and wrestling with my brother, Brewster, because we are both the same size and it is a fair fight, but when I want to go to sleep I seek out my little sister Blossom to cuddle with. My other brother Blarney and I are both very affectionate to people. It would be wonderful if I could find a permanent home with one or more of my siblings.

Charlotte

Charlotte

My brothers and sisters and me were recently rescued from a shelter; we had colds and were going to be put to sleep.  But the Fat Cat people saw our pathetic photos and took us and gave us some medicine and now we're fine.  We are all very sweet and start purring the moment we're petted.

I'm the shy, quiet one.  I like to play by myself -- I'm ferocious with mice that rattle  -- and prefer to sit back and watch my brothers and sisters get into trouble.  When they do (and they always are up to something) and my foster mom finds out, she tells me what a good girl I am (no trouble at all!), and then gives me lots of pets.  Needless to say my siblings think I'm a "brown nose" but I don't have any brown on me, just black and orange!  I would do well in a quiet home, where my human could adore me.

I need a therapist.  I have a problem: I have an insatiable desire to suckle on the side of the faces of my siblings.  I admit it's weird, and I think it's due to an abandonment issue -- I miss my mom.  Fortunately my siblings tolerate their faces getting soggy; no one tells me no.  But my foster human says I need an intervention.  It's a big word, and I don't like the sound of it.  Other than that slight quirk, I'm a super kitten.  I LOVE people, and follow my foster mom around, and am very talkative. And my foster mom is certain I'm gonna outgrow my, er, issue.

Me and Cooper are like identical twins.  It's really hard to tell us apart, but he's got a white strip on one of his legs and I don't.  So sometimes when Cooper does something naughty, my foster mom thinks I did it!  And of course Cooper isn't one to own up.  But it's OK.  I love my siblings, and I love the other foster kittens.  I'm easygoing and sweet.  And I'm big.  I'm gonna be a big girl.  So if maybe you're looking to adopt two kittens that can double as bookends, consider me and Cooper.

Eli: Let's talk

Eli

We were surrendered to a local shelter when we were about 6 weeks old.  We weren't very happy to be in the shelter -- we were scared and frightened and missed our mom --  and we hissed and spat at the shelter staff.  They decided we weren't "adoption candidates" and placed us on a "special needs list" -- in other words, if a rescue group didn't take us, we were goners.  Fortunately the Fat Cat people saw our photos and knew we'd settle down once we were out of the shelter and got lots of love and attention.

I am a handsome Tuxedo kitten and I'm very loving and playful.  Just like my brother Ethan, I really like people and when you pick me up, I will start purring immediately.  I don't mind telling you that out of all my siblings, my fur is the softest, just like velvet.  I guess I was just born lucky.  I love playing with my brother and sisters.  I'm the strong silent type -- I'm not a talker.  Sometimes I like to nibble my foster mom's hair - it's just my way of saying thanks for taking care of me!  I can't wait for someone special to adopt me.

Won't you take me home?

The best way you can tell me apart from my brothers and sister is that I have the smallest smidgen of white around my mouth.  I am very quiet, affectionate, and super cute.  When I was little, it took me a while to get used to people, but once I warm up to you, I will start purring right away when you pick me up.  I love playing with my brothers and sister.  There are two things in life that I think are just fascinating: a plastic cat toy with a spinning ball (I love catching the ball with my paws!) and looking out the window.  I hope I can find a forever home soon - will you adopt me?

I stand out from the crowd.  My brothers and sister look very similar, but I am the only one with a beautiful white blaze.  I am the shyest one - it takes me a while to get used to people, but once I do, I start purring right away when you pick me up.  I am pretty clever in finding places to hide, especially in a closet.  I am definitely not a talker - "quiet" is my middle name.  I hope I can find someone who can appreciate my sense of serenity and overall cuteness.  Will you be the one to take me home?

I am the most friendly and sociable kitten of all my siblings.  I really love people.  Even if I've never met you before, I will come to you for attention.  I love cuddling next to my foster mom.  Once in a while, I will meow for attention, but generally, I'm not a talker.  I love to play with my brother and sisters and my cat toys, but my #1 favorite thing to do (besides purring loudly while getting pet) is watching my foster mom refill the water bowls.  Where does all the water come from?  I must know!  I am definitely ready for my forever home and being someone's special companion.  Won't you take me home?

Imogene

Imogene

My sisters and me were rescued from a local shelter when we were just 3 weeks old.  We're a funny looking group: super thin and long-legged, kinda like feline greyhounds.  Our foster mom kept trying to fatten us up by feeding us and feeding us and giving us worm medicine (thinking maybe we had worms and that's why we didn't gain weight).  She just didn't understand that we're naturally lean kittens.  I think she wishes she was thin like us. Not a chance.

I'm the beautiful tortoiseshell of the group.  I really like people, and when my foster mom comes to see Irene and me, I have this real neat thing I do to get her attention: I get behind her and tap tap tap her back with my paw.  She always turns around (works every time!) and looks surprised to find me there and then she picks me up and gives me a kiss.  My other neat attention-getting ploy is jumping on the window ledge so that I'm about at eye level -- this way she can't miss me.

I'm especially close to my sister Irene.  It would be great if we could go to a home together. She looks just like a lioness.

Lincoln

Lincoln

Meow! My name is Lincoln! My brothers and sister and me and my mom were taken to a shelter when we kids were just 2 weeks old. The Fat Cat people saw our photos and rescued us and found us a loving foster home.

I'm the explorer of the group (there's one in every litter).  I love playing with my humans and cuddling with them.  My favorite toys are mouse toys, krinkly balls, and wand toys -- anything that moves or makes a sound, and I'm on it!  I would love to go to a home that has lots of toys and activities for me to keep me busy.  I grew up in a busy foster home with my siblings and my foster mom’s three resident cats and several humans.  The Fat Cat people have been very impressed with my foster family, because all of the kittens they foster turn out to be amazingly sweet and mellow.

It would be great if you could adopt me with one of my siblings.  I hope to meet you soon!

Louie

Louie

Meow! My name is Louie! My brothers and sister and me and my mom were taken to a shelter when we kids were just 2 weeks old. The Fat Cat people saw our photos and rescued us and found us a loving foster home.

Although Lincoln is the explorer of the group, I'm his right-hand cat, and assist him in exploring the house.  I let him do all the risky stuff of checking out a new situation, and once he gives the all-clear I come join him. All that exploring is exhausting, and one of my favorite things to do is taking long naps on my human's beds.   I grew up in a busy foster home with my three siblings and my foster mom’s three resident cats and several humans.  The Fat Cat people have been very impressed with my foster family, because all of the kittens they foster turn out to be amazingly sweet and mellow.

I would love to go to a home with lots of places to explore and toys to play with.  And it would be great if you could adopt me with Lincoln so we could explore together.  I hope to meet you soon!

Patch: Let's play!

Patch

Hey there, I'm Patch! My favorite activity is to watch my siblings play while I'm tucked away in your arms, and then to jump out and chase after them, especially if they're chasing after that fuzzy mouse or crinkle ball.  

My other favorite activity is to snuggle. I always want to be right next to you and be the center of attention. When you come into a room, I will rub up against you and not leave your side until you've petted me. Sometimes my human friends need a reminder that I'm there and so therefore I plop down next on top of their feet and let them rub my belly. And sometimes if I'm not getting enough attention,  or I can't find my human friends, I'll meow to let them know where I am so they can come get me and hold me and pet me.

I'll also try to get their attention by making air biscuits or pawing the air to say, "hi I'm here!" My favorite place to sleep is curled up right next to my human friends, sometimes even on their chest so I'm closest to them. I also love being held like a baby while my belly is rubbed, or just over your shoulder. I will even make biscuits while being held because I love it so much.

Can't wait to snuggle with you!

Pinky

Pinky

Hi, I'm Pinky! I am a wild little girl kitten. I love to play, wrestle, and tumble. I have a lot of energy, but when I'm sleepy, I like to nap on or near my human friends. I look a lot like my sister, Polkadot, but I have a black stripe on the right side of my head, whereas she has a stripe on the left side of her head. We're almost twins! My favorite thing to do is play with my mouse toy. No matter how many times I catch it, it keeps moving -- so fun! I'm the most playful of my siblings, and I'm also the fastest on my feet. 

I love to be around my human friends and get petted by them. I also love kisses on my head and will head butt you until you pay attention. When we snuggle, I like to be sure I get lots of pets on my body, and head especially. I absolutely love playing and snuggling with my fellow kittens.

Can't wait to meet you so we can play together!

Pipsqueak

Pipsqueak

Hi! I'm Pipsqueak! I was named because I'm the smallest of my siblings.  But I have a big heart, and love people, and love being around people.  And I'm also the goofy younger brother that never gets blamed for any wrongdoing, because I'm so cute. I really try to work that angle!

My favorite sport is a cross between rugby and wrestling, where I dash around and tackle my siblings. I also love toys, and am very curious, and think that every object is something to play with. I love being held, and especially love being held like a baby and having my belly rubbed -- I  purr and close my eyes because I'm so happy.

I am very extroverted and curious, and have to know what's going on and be in the middle of the action. Sometimes I get so excited I just sprint around the room, even if everyone else is sleeping. When I sit, I almost always wrap my tail around my body to show that I am a little gentleman. When I get sleepy, I get nice and warm and cozy I'm like a little heat brick, and I'll stay snuggling next to your feet or on top of your chest for as long as you're there. I love making eye contact and observing my humans  and watching them.

Can't wait to meet you!

Polkadot

Polkadot

Hey, I'm Polkadot! I cannot decide whether my favorite thing to do is to run around, chasing and playing with my human or kitty friends, or to snuggle and cuddle with them. I look a lot like my sister, Pinky, but I have a black stripe on the left side of my head, whereas she has a stripe on the right side of her head -- we're almost twins! Sometimes if you are not paying enough attention to me I'll meow and look up at you to make sure you know I need some pets and attention. I love when my humans pet and hold me.

Since there are 5 of us, it can get a little crowded when we all decide to snuggle next to our fosterer, but I always work my way through the snuggle heap and claim the spot closest to you. I will even lay draped across your neck if that is the closest spot to you. And if you're not petting me, I'll look directly into your eyes and let out a dainty little meow even if you're a few inches from me, to let you know I'm there.  In case you forgot.

I'm a talker.  If for some reason you're not in the room with me, I'll meow to remind you "I'm here!" and to please come and play with me.   And I like to give you licks and kisses.  

Pick me!

Punkin

Punkin

Purr, I'm Punkin!  I am the sweet one; a little motorboat at heart. The second you start to pet me, I start to purr. My favorite thing to do is to explore, but if there is a toy around, you bet I'll play with it. I love when humans pet me; I'll even let them rub my belly. When my human foster family comes in a room, I love to sniff them and find out where they've been.

I'm a bit of an attention-hound, and like to remind my humans that I'm around by wrapping myself around their legs, and giving them head-butts.  When I'm sleepy, I like to curl up close to you, and put my head  right next to your hand, so that you can pet me at a moment's notice.  If you lay down with a blanket, I'll be the first one there to come over and start purring next to you. If there is a window to sit by, I'll be there. I love sitting by the window, watching the outdoors, and even just taking a cat nap next to an open window.

I'm a loving, people cat.  Pick me!

Tatiana: I'm gorgeous

Tatiana

Here's my story: The Fat Cat people were visiting the shelter a couple months ago.  They had looked at all the kittens and picked the ones they were going to take home (and save), and were all set to leave when a staff person said "I've got one more to show you, a pretty one" and led them to my cage.  I was really tiny, and they saw me and said they'll take me, and then YEAH! I got out of the shelter.

The Fat Cat people then found me a wonderful foster home with real nice humans who love me and feed me and care for me.  I'm being fostered with another kitten, Vanessa.

Vanessa and I are now ready for our forever homes.  I have chocolate, caramel, and vanilla colored fur, like a sundae, and like a sundae, I’m super sweet!  I’m quieter and more shy than my best friend Vanessa, and sometimes I like to sit and watch her play with our foster family.  But once I get to know you, you won’t be able to recall how boring your life was without me.  Vanessa and I cry when we are separated, so we would be so happy if you would consider giving us a forever home together.  We purr like motors when our foster family plays with us, and we would bring so much happiness and warmth to your life!  Pick us! Pick us! Please?

Vanessa

Vanessa

I was brought to the shelter all alone.  The Fat Cat people saw my picture and came and took me home.  I cried on the drive home, and cried when they settled me into my little cat bed.  I missed my real mom, and didn't know where I was.  But the real reason I cried was because I was hungry -- real hungry.   The Fat Cat people quickly realized the problem and fed me and fed me and settled me into my bed and cage, so that I'd feel safe.  And now I cry just a little -- when I need a cuddle.

Fortunately the wonderful family that was fostering Tatiana agreed to take me on as well, so now I have the company and companionship of another kitten and a loving family, which is just about the best.

Tatiana and I are both ready for our forever homes!  I’m super chatty, and one of my favorite things to do is hold a conversation with you.  I will purr as soon as I see you walk in the room, and I will sometimes come right up to your face and give you a big kiss.  I might be thin, but don’t let my lean lines fool you – I’m strong and I love to jump and run, especially with Tatiana.  We could wrestle with each other all day!  Both of us love to play with our foster family, too.  We hope you will consider giving us both a forever home together.  We promise you won’t regret your decision.  We are so affectionate, we will love you unconditionally!

Vicky

My siblings and me were picked up as babies from a large apartment complex in Sunnyvale.  Our mom had given birth to several litters over the years at the complex, and had developed quite a reputation among the residents.  The Fat Cat people offered to help get the cats fixed and find the kittens homes, and that is how we came to be Fat Cats, er Kittens.

Did you know that one litter of kittens can have multiple fathers?  It's true, and helps explain why all four of us look completely different (and confirms that our mom was a party girl).

I'm the runt of the litter. I'm the smallest and the most delicate.  All of my siblings have been adopted except ME!  I find that quite astonishing, since I'm the most beautiful, and have the most amazing whiskers you've ever seen.  I love to play chase with Daisy, who is my new best friend, since all her siblings were adopted and she's all alone now too.  I'm always the first to investigate a new cat toy.

Willie aka Snaggletooth

I've got a real sob story: I was adopted by a family and lived with them for 4 years.  Then they moved away, and dumped me outside at their apartment complex to fend for myself.  I wandered around the complex for the next couple years, and nice people fed me and sometimes let me sleep inside.  But I really didn't have a home of my own.  When the Fat Cat people met me, they thought I was real sweet, and took pity on me and took me in.  They cleaned me up and got me healthy -- I'd lost alot of my teeth from malnutrition, but have one tooth left -- my snaggletooth!

So now I'm looking for place to call home. FOREVER.  They tell me I'm a dear boy and don't have any bad habits.  I'm a talker, and love to snuggle up with humans.  I'm happiest when I'm curled up with my family.

Won't you pick me?
